Moving Folders

  ponytail 12:07 25 Dec 2010

I am trying to move a folder from my PCs hard drive to my external drive but keep getting the following mesage.
Error copying file or folder
Cannot copy it is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that may be using the file and try again.
I have hd this message before and all I did was reboot my PC and that cleared the problem but not this time have done three reboots but message still appears.
Anyone any ideas.
